as an artist...
... and author of the video (at my first contribution!), I first want to thank for the existence of Archive.org (I just discovered it) and then explain a bit.
this video is the n-th production of a series of short movies and videoclips produced by recycling just about any video footage I happen to come across.
What I do is let myself be emotionally entangled by media for a while, and then re-structure it according to what is left in my mind, brain, stomach.. the result is a set of perceptions put to video and sound.
The result does not aim to be a "movie": more an experience or a distant blurry dream of an experience.
It is quite abstract and distorted. But then again, most of my artworks are.
The music is completely original by me.
The original video can be found on Archive.org, and it was a commercial video by General Electric, trying to convince the viewer that "illuminated playgrounds and sports centers will save our lives!" (isn't it? right..)
